Rees Standard Ornamentation Catalog
While your Rees Concert Line Harp is lovely just as it stands, adding optional ornamentation lends further visual personality and richness to the instrument. To help you creatively express yourself we have both full soundboard ornamentation and individual ornamentation options. Once you have decided upon the ornamentation which suits you go on into the Rees Marketplace to place your order. If there are decisions to be made, like preferred colors, our artists will reach out to you in the week or so following our receipt of your order. Because ornamentation is one of the last steps when we build your custom harp, there is plenty of time so do not feel like you must make detailed decisions related to any ornamentation prior to placing your harp order. You and the artist working on your harp will work together to create the harp of your dreams.
Full Soundboard Ornamentation Options
Individual Ornamentation Options
The ornamentation elements below can be used either individually or in combination. A couple of them, like the Double Endless Knot, the Laughing Serpents and the Storied Serpent can only be placed on the pillar (at the point or on the brace) or on the side of the soundbox. The Celtic Garland and Celtic Tree of Life only fit on the soundboard. After you place your order one of our artists will get in touch with you and the two of you can decide together on things like placement and colors. The Celtic Border, shown above with the Full Soundboard Ornamentation Options, makes a pleasing frame around several of the individual options below.
